One person was seriously injured when a section of the Cradlestone Mall roof collapsed on Sunday. Three others sustained minor injuries.

The mall, in Krugersdorp, is home to 160 stores.

According to Netcare 911's Shawn Herbst, the collapse took place shortly after midday on Sunday.

“Reports indicate that a large portion of a roof and surrounding structure had collapsed on shoppers. Medics assessed the scene and found that three people had sustained minor injuries and were treated on scene.

“An adult female believed to be in her early thirties had sustained serious injuries and was treated on scene before being flown by Netcare 911 helicopter to a specialist facility,” said Herbst.
